Output Mogul GPS Signal (NMEA) over Bluetooth

Not sure if this has been covered yet, but I wanted to use my Mogul to output NMEA over a Bluetooth Serial Port to act as a Bluetooth GPS for my car computer and laptop (to use with iGuidance 4.0). Here's how I got it to work:

What I'm Using:
Kensington Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR usb dongle
HTC Mogul w/ WM 6.1 & 3.16 ROM (DCD 2.2.0)
Computer with Windows XP and WIDCOMM bluetooth stack (5.1.0.1700)

Set Up computer:
Right click on bluetooth icon in status bar (near time bottom right)
Click 'Bluetooth Configuration'
Click 'Accessibility' Tab -> 'Let other Bluetooth discover this computer'
Click 'Client Applicatons' Tab -> Add COM port
-- If you already have 'Bluetooth Serial Port' added ignore this and remember the port
Click 'Apply' or 'OK'

Set Up Mogul: (PAIR computer and mogul)
Click 'Settings' -> 'Connection' Tab -> Bluetooth
Click 'Mode' tab -> 'Turn on Bluetooth' & 'Make this device visible...'
Click 'Devices' tab -> 'Add new device...'
Click on your device you are adding...
Click 'OK' on top and exit the settings

Set up GpsGate:
Open GpsGate
In 'Input' section choose your COM port and click 'Open'
--- Should say 'Running OK!'
In 'Output' section choose 'Bluetooth Server' from the 'Add Output' dropdown
Click 'Add'
In the popup click 'Encrypt' checkbox and choose 'OK'
'Bluetooth Server' should now be listed in 'Active Output' and when selected
should report 'Running OK!' or 'No Clients Connected'

Finish computer set up:
Right-click on bluetooth icon in status bar (near time)
Go to 'Quick Connect' -> 'Bluetooth Serial Port'
If your device isn't listed (probably won't be) click 'Other devices...'
Click 'Show All Devices' and choose your Mogul (mine shows up as WM_Admin)
Click 'Next' -> Give it a name and click 'Finish'

To Connect : Make sure your bluetooth is turned on on both your Mogul and Computer (if the bluetooth icon shows red right click and click 'Start the Bluetooth device')

Right click on Bluetooth Icon (by time) -> 'Quick Connect' -> 'Bluetooth Serial Port' -> choose your device. Should say something like Connection Successful.

Thats it!


Test:
Open up your favorite terminal program (eg. Hyperterminal), select the COM port you chose from the 'Client Applications' tab and hit Dial or Connect you should start seeing NMEA output from the ComPort

Use:
Open your favorite GPS software and choose the COM port from 'Client Applications' tab as your GPS COM port

This is the step by step I used, if anyone notices anything wrong with it, please let me know and I will fix it.

Sounds good to me. Nice writeup. I'd vote for sticky if there weren't so many already!

Gps2Blue (link in my FAQ http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=363431) is a freeware application that's supposed to do this also, but I haven't tested to see if it works on the Mogul.

I did a similar setup with GpsGate about a week ago, but I shared my Mogul's GPS via TCPIP using an adhoc WiFi connection and GpsGate PC version running on my laptop.

I'll check out Gps2Blue and update the post if it works. I was just about to pop the dollars for GpsGate so I appreciate the mention.
